If music be the food of love, play on,It is the opening scene in the first Act of Twelfth Night and spoken by Duke Orsino of Illyria. If you want to read a bit about the Duke and this play, you will find it here.
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
So of course, I had to play. And what better way to play than with scraps. Yes, everything on these two pages was created from scraps, which means I'm once again joining Moo-Mania and More, where their challenge theme is still Scraps. And since there's lots of love going on, this also qualifies for Love is in the Air at Try it on Tuesday.
More punched music notes were added to a painted heart. The words were also written with the metallic gel pen.
What better scraps than hearts made from candy wrappers. It's a sacrifice, I realize, but someone had to eat the candy!
The words of love were also written in the same metallic gel pen on a leftover scrap of painted paper.
To recap, this spread was made in my Coll-AH-ge Too altered book. The book pages were swiped with pink Patio Paint in spots, the heart made from a scrap of construction paper left over from my Craft Barn challenge, the band across the large heart was left over from a project I'm working on, the painted hearts and small scrap on the right were left over from another project I'm working on, the hearts on the right were cut from candy wrappers, and the music notes were from a book page I painted, then punched out of that paper. Even the book I am altering was rescued from my neighbor's recycle bin. Only the Sakura gel ink pen and the paint could not qualify as scraps.
Now it's time to join me at Art Journal Journey, Moo-Mania and More, and Try it on Tuesday. I hope to see you there, because there are some fantastic mixed media artists on each and everyone of these sites, each a bit different in their entries.
